Porsche – How It All Began
The history of the Porsche brand begins in 1948. However, the foundation itself is the life's work of Professor Ferdinand Porsche, which his son Ferry continued. Ferdinand Porsche was already designing groundbreaking innovations in automobile construction since 1900. With the Lohner-Porsche, he built an electric vehicle with wheel hub drive, and on this basis, the first ever all-wheel drive passenger car in the world, which would come a little later.
Also in the same year, Porsche provided a template for hybrid vehicles with the development of a gasoline-electric mixed drive. With the advent of the “Berlin-Rome Car” in 1939, Ferdinand Porsche laid the foundation for the idea of a sports car with the name Porsche.
Australia has held a special place in Porsche’s history since Melbourne entrepreneur Norman Hamilton imported 2 early 356 models in 1951, making the Porsche car the very first right-hand drive vehicle in Australia. Since those early days, Australians’ demand for Porsche products increased, with thousands of Porsche vehicles coming to Australia each year.
Now Australian Porsche enthusiasts can enjoy Porsche “inside” their own homes, which will make the kids happier than ever. Enjoy collecting Porsche toys in die-cast and plastic models, and witness how these realistic toys replicate the actual details of the original Porsche vehicles.
